Wrap The Arc in Cheer

The financial strains associated with caring for a family member with an intellectual and/or developmental disability can make the holidays an especially difficult time of year. You can help make the season brighter for some of The Arc’s families in need.

Our case managers are collecting gifts for children of our economically disadvantaged families. Below, you can view the wish list each family has created for their children. Keep in mind a gift card to HEB, Walmart, Target, or other retail stores is always a great choice! Simply choose the family you would like to “Wrap In Cheer” from the list below and complete the form at the bottom of the page.

We are accepting unwrapped gifts for these families through Dec. 19th. Please bring your unwrapped gift(s) marked with the Family # to The Arc of San Antonio, 13430 West Avenue, San Antonio, TX 78216.

If you or your company would like to help in a different way, please let us know! Contact Joanna Peters at jpeters@arc-sa.org or call (210) 490-4300 ext. 104.
